Haiti Relief Update

More NC based physicians have been providing care to patients injured in February’s devastating earthquake in Haiti.  The Charlotte Observer this week reported on the mission of two groups, which involved physicians William J. Conner, MD; Mac Montilus, MD; and Russ Greenfield, MD.

 Raleigh-based WRAL-TV aired a report about Duke University offering a Creole class for Haiti relief workers.

Physicians who are interested in serving in Haiti, can contact Steven Landau, MD, in Smithfield. Dr. Landau is helping to coordinate volunteers for clinics operated by AMURT-Haiti and can be reached at [email protected] or 919-284-4149.

America’s North Shore Journal reported on the relief work being done by medics based at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg.

A recent article in American Medical News highlighted the experiences of physicians involved in crisis care in Haiti.
